Trump rally comes dangerously close to Trump riot -- anger breeds more anger
By Michael Bresciani

Chicago 3/11/2016 – Trump supporters sent home because over ten thousand protesters call Trump a hater and a racist.

The cancelled Trump rally is a testament against the decayed and pitiful state of the American political process. Trump decried the loss of his "freedom of speech," but refused to take any responsibility for the misuse of his own First Amendment rights.

Previously, protesters at Trump's rallies were physically ejected and some were punched in the face as they were escorted out. That scene closely followed Trump's declaration that he wanted to punch some protesters in the face.

Do we dare to remind the Trumpettes that our Founding Fathers warned that personal responsibilities were not to be suspended for the exercise of free speech?

Do we dare to ask the Donald if he would conjure up the memories of his third-grade teacher, who told him that even little rich boys will only stir up a lot of anger if they put out a lot of anger?

Do we dare to remind Donald that most Americans don't like the idea that only black lives matter above the idea that all lives matter. We also think that America does not want to be a Bernie Sanders modern socialistic nanny state. But we also still believe in the need for our best representatives and leaders to be gentlemen at the least and hopefully statesmen – if possible.

Mr. Trump, it is obvious, never mastered third-grade lessons on how to get along with others. His use of fighting words, crass and inflammatory, are the spark that ignites the volatile mix of dissatisfied, howbeit not-so-stable American discontents. Trump is the spark that goes off in the flash pan, but we are the recipients of the deadly projectile that it sends on its way.

Trump boasts of his successful "Apprentice" reality show, which was also an anger-producing theme based on the fierce and never-welcomed final words – "You're Fired." Appealing to the basest view of women, he paraded the beauties, who he thought were not "bimbos" for the world to fawn over and judge worthy or unworthy, also third-grade thinking at its very worst.

Is all this an example of how he would handle foreign policy? Is this his plan in an equally volatile world where other bullies like himself – Russia, North Korea, Communist China, and Iran, to name a few – would respond against a Trumpian foreign policy not with 10,000 protesters, but with armies of over 2,000,000 and a sprinkling of fully armed nuclear ballistic missiles?

To Trump, some people are bimbos, while others are fools, losers, idiots, stupid, and small.

Could it be that ten thousand people felt he was speaking to them and showed up to tell him he could go to blazes?

How do you tell millions of Americans that a motive of anger will not get them the best president? If this writer's experience counts for anything, I can say with no uncertainty that whatever you say to Trump supporters, it always and only makes them – angry! Check the Tweets, the social sites, it is unmistakable.

No one would argue that MoveOn.org and Bill Ayers may have a part in mustering the protesters, but the seeds of their "anger" were clearly sown by the brawling, nasty-tongued, belittler of the noblest of people, Mr. Donald Trump.

Will the third-grade candidate withdraw before plunging the nation into a national brawl? More hopefully, will those who very well know that if they do not get behind one serious conservative candidate, Trump will win and America will lose?

Don't get angry – vote for Ted Cruz, who can with relentless determination and conviction turn the liberal movement on its ear.

If you can – make haste to tell Mr. Trump, who claims to read his Bible daily, to study the following passage.

"Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God." (Ps 50: 23)
